Anglo-Indian seniors queuing for pensions

Help us help other needy Anglo-Indians in India



Established in 1999, the sole purpose of CTR is to help the indigent Anglo-Indian in India.

To this end, CTR has two major thrusts:

  • Providing pensions to seniors
  • As of Dec 2013, 312 seniors were being given a monthly pension - 140 in Kolkata, 105 in Chennai, 35 in Bangalore, 17 in Vijayawada and 15 in Vizagapatam. 
  • Educating children
    As of Dec 2013, 210 children were being educated - 55 boarders and 65 day scholars in Kolkata, 35 in Chennai, 30 day scholars in Hyderabad and 25 day scholars in Vijayawada.

2016 saw us send India 4,003,731 rupees (around USD $62,500).

Of all the money collected, 99% goes to the causes we support. This is an unprecendented figure for a donation statisticspublic charity. CTR also publishes books on Anglo-Indian culture. The gross proceeds of all sales go to the charity. CTR has published EIGHT books with the latest "More Voices on the Verandah" launched in 2012. All books are available on the website and from CTR coordinators. Don't procrastinate - write something NOW! Information about all CTR's activities can be found by following the various links on this website.


It is worth reiterating that our admin fees are less than 1/10 of 1% (0.001) and ALL your money goes directly to seniors or children.

We do not pay to advertise CTR, nor do we pay to support any social, ethnic or pollitical groups.


CTR has branches in:

  • Australia - Melbourne, Sydney and Perth
  • UK - London
  • Canada - Toronto
  • USA - headquartered in New Jersey

All the branches are run by volunteers who are not paid, either in cash or in kind.

CTR administers its programs through local administrators in:

  • Kolkata - CAISS and Loreto, Entally
  • Chennai - Vine Charitable Trust, Smile Cares and Teacup Ministry
  • Bangalore - Ms Sylvia Bosen
  • Hyderabad - Ms Margaret Studden
  • Vijayawada - Mr Leonard Rego

CTR funds all its programs through these administrators.

CTR is making a difference and invites all to help.

Finally, let me leave you with this quotation from James 2 Chaps 14-16:

quotes on My friends, what good is it for one of you to say that you have faith if your actions do not prove it? Can that faith save you? Suppose there are brothers or sisters who need clothes and don't have enough to eat. What good is there in you saying to them, "God Bless you! Keep warm and eat well!", if you don't give them the necessities of life? So it is with faith: If it is alone and includes no actions, then it is dead. quotes off
